some showers will be returning. today, we got off mainly dry and brighter weekend ahead. although, it's not exactly going to be picture perfect. we have a lot of clouds out there right now still across much of the area. not as thick and low as they were yesterday. and that allowed some of the sun's rays to get through and warm us all the way up to 70 degrees. 67 right now, winds east-southeast, but we're 10 degrees warmer than we were at this time yesterday. and remember, back on sunday it was 92. yesterday's high only 58 was the coldest june day that we've had since 1972. and today, up to 70 but that's still almost 10 degrees below average. some of the warmest weather up in allentown where we have the most sunshine. and it's 65 in the poconos with sunshine. but 57 in georgetown and wildwood where it's been cloudy and windy and wet all day once again. and the warming from the
philadelphia area northward because of the thinner clouds. and you can see that it's practically clear. not that far away. but what's happening here is it looks like the moisture is starting to come back. slowly not a lot of moisture, but just enough so that not only do we have some sprinkles in the forecast for tonight and drizzle in for tomorrow morning, but that should keep us pretty cloudy during the day tomorrow. here's the future cast hour by hour and you can see all the clouds around. and just an occasional little bit of light rain or drizzle later on tonight and into first thing in the morning. and you may need a light jacket again, tomorrow. won't be as cold as yesterday. it may not be as mild as today. so we're going to have to wait another day before we actually see the temperature get up close to average. cloudy tonight with a chance of a little bit of light rain or
drizzle late. and the temperatures in the mid-50s. you can see they're fairly uniform with the east wind. and tomorrow the east to northeast wind continues. so you can't get rid of this moisture. cloudy and cool, a chance of some showers, and perhaps a little bit cooler than today. and then the 7-day forecast. little bit more sunshine on friday allows temperatures to get into the 70s. a little bit more on saturday but we still have a chance of showers on saturday. better chance saturday than on sunday. doesn't look picture perfect either day. but a whole lot nicer than the last couple have been. and then the best chance of showers over the next week is on monday. >> we're going to hear from mccoy getting questions. that's next.
